Today is Chemo Day 4, the last day of chemo, the last 3-shower-day. The nausea and loss of appetite started mid-day yesterday, and the vomitting started early this morning. I am feeling a bit better now, so am able to post.
Hmmm…I’m thinking to myself this is only the beginning and it feels horrible already. I feel so low on energy and have to take a nap every time I get up for a washroom break. I am able to eat about half of my meal which is still very good. But I can no longer drink plain water. It makes me throw up. I have to drink ginger ale.
That little blue pill I ask for at night helps me sleep for 4-5 hrs straight. That’s good.
Tomorrow is my only radiation day. I get total body irradiation tomorrow twice, once in the morning, once in the afternoon. Then, my “conditioning regimen” is complete.
